/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The “Energy Accreted Ecologies” project takes place in a very unique context at the borders of the Sahara Desert, in the Southern Tunisia and stimulates a new agri-urban territory. More specifically, the proposal is applied in one of the biggest salt lakes, the Chott el Djerid salt lake where the consequences of desertification have transform it into a complete dry and arid landscape. The area that it is known for centuries as an important trading post of caravan routes crossing the Sahara desert to the northeastern Mediterranean coast, now is undertaking a new kind of trading, that of renewable energy, that will be distribute and consumed to the hole European region. Towards this shift, desert is seen as a new terrain for exploiting renewable energy through large scale solar panels (Tunur pilot project), that are placed in what it is consider to be an “empty and dead” landscape. Under this context, the project aims to discuss the frictions between such a huge development in the desert and the ecology of the wider are, by reconsidering the relationship between territory, man and nature. Through our design, we propose new urban settlements and infrastructures (the Bedouin Power House, the Bio-Dune Lab, the Water Hub) that constitute innovative design approaches by taking advantage of the natural ingredients extracted from the landscape, by creating an alternative and more ecologic way of inhabiting such extreme environments and an alternative vision of energy production, that corresponds to the cultural, environmental and social needs of the area.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Object of this diploma project is a small environmental hotel in combination with botanical plantations in South Evia’s landscape. The hotel’s target is to prompt one to escape from everyday city life and restore his relationship with nature. The hotel consists of botanical gardens, nine habitation units and a shared function building. This building, houses a dual-use space that combines the restaurant and the “use of herbs” area, as well as a library. The designs main goal is to integrate the rocky landscape, so that landscape and building seem to have always coexisted. Moreover, our intention was that the visitor experiences the landscape, lives in it, without ever losing contact with earth and nature. We, therefore, handled the intense terrain by creating levels of plantations, influenced by the traditional technique of planting in similar Cycladic landscapes, called “stone walls”. In the same way, we designed walls that hold the earth and hid the habitation units behind them so as not to be distinguished where nature ends and building begins. Moreover, we created a sequence of mass and void, interrupting the interior with enclosed gardens sheltered from the winds, places of peace and contemplation. The result is a creation of spaces where the visitor feels immersed in the landscape and never loses the connection with the rocky lanscape. Finally, inspired by the characteristic of the schistose rocks prevailing in the area we chose to build the walls from rammed earth, a technique that uses materials from the site, soil, stone and clay, to construct bio-walls whose final form are pressed layers of earth. These walls are a modern form of the traditional dry stone walls. It is said that the outcome of this technique is a handmade wall of solid rock. stinguished. Moreover, our in

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// From ancient times until today the Acropolis hill was functioned as a standard model-magnet, not only in the level of thought and architecture but also in the development of the city. The facts that determine the city of Athens are affected by the mythological aspect of the Acropolis. The role of the hill as the ‘absolute scenery’ and as a field even the times it is not visible, signifies the immediate and wider enviroment of the city. The subject of this project is a contemporary housing design in the wider region of the center of Athens that emphasize the relationship with the ancinent monument. The contemporary housing block can have eiher a direct optical view with ‘the object of desire’, or an imaginary relationshiop. In the city of Athens, the Acropolis hill stands like a reference mark. The housing block of the 21st century should be situated in a place where it has a direct optical view with the ancient monumnet and a crucial position in the city. The housing block in our proposal is a transition between the ancient region of Plaka and the modern city of Athens. This transition is achieved by a gradual reduction of housing height and scale through a new urban system which is oriented directly to the Acropolis hill. The housing blockc onsistsoflanes, that provide the motion in the urban block, and housing units which are placed in a way that create free movement and open space. What is produced by the design is a perforated urban block that provides insolation and ventilation to every single house unit and free space on each floor.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The hill of Lycabettus is one of the three hills that surround the ancient city of Athens, along with the Acropolis and the Filopappou hill. It’s crucial position in the body of the city - which allows it to function like a periscope- recommends an important green space. The relationship between the hill and the city has been lost due to the fact that the city is over built. The subject of this project is to identify the role of Lycabettus in the Attiic landscape and to create a public space, that represents the entrance of the city towars the hill. This open space must restore the relatioship between the hill and city and must integrate in the urban tissue. The main design outline uses the countour lines as the basic design tool for the formation of the new terrain, which consists of different plateus that elevate the visitor towards the Hill. The terrain is folding in a way that produces shelters, ramps, an entrance boundary and a building at the end of the promenade towards the Lycabettus Hill. The promenade is created through a specified path that is leading to Lycabettus Hill. Walking up the Hill, the visitor can run into three resting stops, where meeting points and commercial functions are located.

The project is located in the center of Athens, between Omonoia and Victoria square. The main goal of the project is to design a building that would become the landmark of the neighborhood, which is characterized by tall buildings that are formed with strict geometry. We designed a building that disinclines city’s urban tiscue and marks a new design generation in the neighborhood. We took as a starting point the city’s verticality and horizontality and tryed to condense it, by folding it in the urban void. The building consists of four triangular folding lanes that form in the inside diverse functions, such as library spaces, seminars, art exhibitions, administration, and internet cafe, as well as open spaces in the edge of each triangle-lane. Inside each floor_lane, the space is open and contiguous and the functions are ceperated with slight and short height walls. In the center of each floor, an atrium is created that provides a fluid space in the building and a free motion to the visitor.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The objective of the competition was to design an urban block for a new city of 150.000 people and 13 million m2 of housing near Moscow. The participants were asked to find an optimum between specificity and flexibility. Since it would be possible to use the block in multiple locations. In general, specificity refers to the manipulation of the house unit, whereas flexibility refers to the order of the general scheme, conveyed by a system. Specificity and flexibility respond to two very different scales, the human and the block. Pursuing the ideal house often results in a weal management of the whole, while giving priority to the block may end up putting aside issues pertainig to the small scale. The design proposes a space of intermediate scale, an adaptor bridging the qualities of the general scheme to those of the house unit. This space adaptor brings together the neighborhood of four houses, functioning as a shared living room. Another version of the space adaptor referring to a group of 4 to 6 neighborhoods forms a wider living room. The total of 15 of these groups diffuses into the main yard, being the common living room of the total block.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The proposal places the altermall in the historical centre of Athens, Greece and activates the ‘hidden’ urban voids of the urban blocks. Those urban voids consist of the “stoa” -commercial arcades which in the Greek urban structure are corridors in the ground floor of the buildings with shops on both sides, and the unbuilt open space within the urban blocks. Therefore, what is suggested is a network of those urban building voids which creates a solid building within the unrevealed city whose shell is articulated by already existing spaces. The previous commercial function of the arcades and the unexploited space of the akaliptos and parts of the pedestrian roads are transformed in a different mall which provides the city with a new public and green area penetrating it. Among all the inactive urban arcades and akaliptos, a group of those which connect the central Syntagma square with the Monastiraki square, are considered as the most appropriate to compose a hidden building, the Altermall. As concerns the interior of the building, the enclosed spaces of the arcades and the urban building voids interact along the path. The constant continuity of the levels composing the building allows an unfolded pedestrian and cyclists movement through the interior spaces of the edifice. Activities such as workshops, library, reading areas, rest areas, auditorium, multi-uses areas, administration plus services, city information, seminar classes are placed throughout the enclosed spaces and in multiple levels while the green park, the pic-nic area and the sports zone are placed within the urban building voids.

Focusing on the parametric design, the course emphasizes the direct connection of digital technologies in manufacturing, whether it is for digital documentation and databases, or digital design building systems, or production using CNC machine tools. The subject of this course was to design of a small architectural item as well as the CNC production of its model. This architecture item can be seen either as an object or as a building. Our proposal was based on the simultaneous transformation of two cubes, creating a fluid volume along with a fluid hollow path within the volume. Our design can be seen as a building either vertical or horizontal. The CNC model was fabricaded with plexiglass in order to provide a transparent object where the inside path can be seen. stinguished.

The main objective of this project was to design an everyday object for public or private spaces, indoor or outdoor. The object itself could exceed the standard conventional operations and be understood as a proposal of a system of functions, satisfying a modern concept, for example, the concept of “sitting” and be part of a broader contemporary perception of space. Our proposal is a multiple funcion public bench which is characterized by the recurrent repetition of rectilinear metal bars. These bars are placed horizontal in the left side of the bench and gradually deform with deviation until they reach the ground where the bars become horizontal again. When these bars are deformed, they create multiple functions in the way someone can sit. This public bench becomes a resting area where someone can sit at the the two ‘starting points’ of the bench and lie on in the middle. stinguished.

The basic design concept of the new building in relation to the existing one lies on the concept of “Agora”, the street that hosts many activities. The museum is constructed in parallel to the existing one in an elongated wedge-shaped form similar to the shape of the land surrounding it and consolidated with the old building via the existing rear addition and manufactured roofed semi-open space ( “axis “) traffic. In the new building placed in principle to direct access from the axis movement of two buildings: a multipurpose room, the space of shop and a cafe -restaurant. Also in this section are incorporated functional spaces exhibitions and educational room programs actually housed in the rear addition of the preserved building. In the second part of the new building, with the possibility of independent entry, there are administrative offices, workshops and maintenance areas , storage rooms, delivery areas .

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The project’s scope aims to integrate -morphological and functional - the consolidation of the urban fabric of Larissa’s city center and connecting it with the ancient theater, the Peneus and park Alcazar. In terms of sustainabily, the project aims to reverse the urban heat island effect and improve the microclimate of the area, as well as to reverse the environmental degradation of the urban area and the upgrading of the urban environment by Improving the quality of life through a sustainable development. The proposed sustainable intervention in the area is located within the central dense urban fabric of Larissa with a strong problem of climate deterioration, and suggests the pedestrianization of the expansion of the remaining portion of the road Venizelos, the formation of collateral pathways and this Skylosofou Polycarp, the regeneration pathway studies by road Centaurs, regeneration of the surrounding area around the Ag. Achilleiou and the western part of the fortress on the hill and complete the pedestrian street Bishop Ambrose. The total area of the region (the building blocks) where the proposed interventions will take place is 25000 m2, and the area of open spaces in which the proposed redevelopment will take place is 15865 m2.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The objective of this theoretical thesis was to examine the meaning of atmosphere in architecture as it appears in the work of Swiss architect, Peter Zumthor. Through the analysis of nine topics based on his book «Atmospheres» (2006), we studied Zumthor’s work and attempted to understand the tools he uses in his attempt to create spacial experiences that arise the senses. Peter Zumthor is an architect who has not only deepened in the theoretical concept of atmosphere, but has also given substance in this meaning through his architectural work. His projects are not many in number, but they are characterized by a clarity of form, an evocative atmosphere and a masterful knowledge of materilals. Through his architecture he aims to design spaces with soul that excite the visitor and become part of his everyday life. The understanding of a space, according to Zumthor, has its roots in architecure experience and and how the aesthetic aspects of this experience begin the withdrawal of our memories. He argues that sensual connection between man and the building should respect the process of recollection, and all the motions and our perceptions are related to our past. Wondering, how he can create magical places that touch people’s soul, he gives nine responses, which he claims that concerned him in his effort to create specific atmospheres. These topics concern architectural elements, such as a building’ s body, it’s materials, the way it involves movement, it’s scale, the relationship between it’s inside with the outside world. They also concern natural elements, which architecture handles, such as temperature, sound, light. In each chapter, after explaining the architect’s words for the referenced element, we try to discover in which way theory comes to life, analysing and comparing certain buildings in which this element dominates.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The main intention of this study is to investigate how the use of algorithms can be deployed as a methodology for design and form finding. Starting by defining the influence of digital technologies in architecture design and the range of opportunities that a computer software can provide to architects, this essay will analyze through different examples how form is defined through principles of nature, structure and self-organization. Starting with D’Arcy Thompson as an example of a structural concept of forms, this research will examine how we can understand biological evolution, through the morphology of forms. Moreover, form based on natural principles will be analyzed through the experiments of Frei Otto and how he relates the structure of natural elements directly to design. The example of Gaudi will present how we can learn from nature and understand about forms, from a more abstract natural phenomena by using hanging models to create design process. Furthermore, a discussion of design process that imitates the construction principles of biological systems in order to generate form, will be presented through the example of biomimetics. In order to test how biological systems and mechanisms, even the molecular scale, can be employed in design using algorithmic process to simulate natural behaviors, an experiment design project taking place in Tunisia will be finally presented. In the era where digital technologies are the main tool for design, this essay will finally discuss how through this different concepts we think about form thought natural elements and how we employ this mechanisms in design, as well as and how this algorithmic approach is a process that has a value to design.
